CBD works differently based on the individual and their lifestyle, so you need to personalise your dosage based on how you respond. That’s why we recommend you start with a low application and build up gradually, finding a level that works for you. The amount of CBD correct for you is the one that gives you the desired effect. Once you feel that improved state, stop, this is what works for you. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) recommends not using more than 70mg per day, and if you’re already taking prescribed CBD medication, you should consult your doctor before consuming more.
By taking CBD oil sublingually (under the tongue), the body absorbs it directly into the bloodstream so the effects can be noticed within 10-15 minutes. We recommend keeping the oil under your tongue for 1-3 minutes before swallowing. It’s also possible to take the oil with food, where the effect is less immediate, taking up to an hour. When taking orally we have some great recipe and drinks ideas on how you can take your Elements CBD oil.
CBD affects everyone differently can vary depending upon the concentration of CBD in the product, so we encourage our customers to start with a minimum amount, then assess how they feel, then adjust the amount as needed. The things you feel or don’t feel may be subtle and can take time to notice so it can take your body a while to find a new equilibrium. Some people will notice the effects within the first hour or two while for others it can take 1-2 weeks. The amount of CBD that is right for you can also change over time so listen to your body and adjust accordingly.
